Maintenance of type 2 glycolytic myofibers with age by Mib1-Actn3 axis
Prof. Young-Yun Kong
Age-associated muscle atrophy is a debilitating condition associated with loss of muscle mass and function with age that contributes to limitation of mobility and locomotion.
Realization of superabsorption by time reversal of superradiance
Prof. Kyungwon An
Emission and absorption of light lie at the heart of light–matter interaction.
Redirecting dynamic surface restructuring of a layered transition metal oxide catalyst for superior ...
Prof. Jongwoo Lim
Rationally manipulating the in situ formed catalytically active surface of catalysts remains a tremendous challenge for a highly efficient water electrolysis.
Shimiella gen. nov. and Shimiella gracilenta sp. nov. (Dinophyceae, Kareniaceae), a Kleptoplastidic ...
Prof. Hae Jin Jeong
A small dinoflagellate, ~13 μm in cell length, was isolated from Jinhae Bay, Korea. Light microscopy showed that it was similar to the kleptoplastidic dinoflagellate Gymnodinium gracilentum nom. inval. rDNA sequences were obtained and its anatomy and morphology described using light and scanning and transmission electr...
Graphene Quantum Dots Alleviate Impaired Functions in Niemann-Pick Disease Type C in Vivo
Prof. Kyung-Sun Kang
While the neuropathological characteristics of Niemann-Pick disease type C (NPC) result in a fatal diagnosis, the development of clinically available therapeutic agent remains a challenge. Here we propose graphene quantum dots (GQDs) as a potential candidate for the impaired functions in NPC in vivo. In addition to the...
Telomeres reforged with non-telomeric sequences in mouse embryonic stem cells
Prof. Junho Lee
Telomeres are part of a highly refined system for maintaining the stability of linear chromosomes.
L1 retrotransposons exploit RNA m6A modification as an evolutionary driving force
Prof. Kwangseog Ahn
L1 retrotransposons can pose a threat to genome integrity. The host has evolved to restrict L1 replication.
Simple physical mixing of zeolite prevents sulfur deactivation of vanadia catalysts for NOx removal
Prof. Do Heui Kim
Here, we report that physically mixed H-Y zeolite effectively protects vanadium active sites by trapping ABS in micropores.
An assessment of emission characteristics of Northern Hemisphere cities using spaceborne observation...
Prof. Sujong Jeong
Intensified anthropogenic activities and high levels of energy consumption in cities have led to an increase in emissions of CO2 and air pollutants, impacting air quality and calling for better measures to monitor and reduce emissions. This study assesses the emission characteristics of cities in the Northern Hemispher...
Synthetic protein quality control to enhance full-length translation in bacteria
Prof. Sang Woo Seo
Coupled transcription and translation processes in bacteria cause indiscriminate translation of intact and truncated messenger RNAs, inevitably generating nonfunctional polypeptides.
Vibrio cholerae FruR facilitates binding of RNA polymerase to the fru promoter in the presence of fr...
Prof. Yeong-Jae Seok
In most bacteria, efficient use of carbohydrates is primarily mediated by the phosphoenolpyruvate (PEP):carbohydrate phosphotransferase system (PTS), which concomitantly phosphorylates the substrates during import.
